Sheryl Barbich traveled to Patagonia and Argentina where she hiked, rode horses, and interacted with the local people and culture while ensuring that she wore her Rotary pin.  
Jim Damian celebrated Valentine's Day by taking his daughter, Ruby, and her friends to a Golden State Warriors basketball game. That evening, a winter storm closed both the Grapevine and 58, ultimately leaving Jim and the girls stuck in Mojave. As a result, Jim and his party were treated to luxurious rooms at Mojave's Motel 6.
